Conrad Shawcross worked for one month to stage a site-specific project at the Careyes Art Space, as well as to collaborate with children from “Juan Gil Preciado” school in Agua Caliente Nueva through a series of educational art workshops. The artist’s larger practice is invested in negotiating the intersections of the fields of philosophy and science. These Platonistic investigations and experiments give rise to poetic and formalist sculptures and installations. His lexicon relies on vacillating relationship between the empirical and the uncertain.
Conrad Shawcross lives and works in London. He received his MFA from the Slade School of Art, London, and has exhibited at teh Palais de Tokyo, Paris, National Gallery, London, Hayward Gallery, London, Manifesta, San Sebastian, the 55th, Venice Bienniale, Palazzo Fortuny, Venice. Shawcross is crafting a proposal at this time, perhaps based on a journey project titled Pre-Retroscope as well as a singular sculpture for the exhibition space and an outdoor sculpture.
